all I want is Lemonade

To make a simple syrup, combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of honey, and 1 cup of mint leaves, packed loosely.

Boil until honey dissolves (about 1 minute). Strain out tea leaves. Allow the mixture to cool.

Pour 1 cup of lemon juice into a pitcher. Stir in the syrup. Add water to your taste. Adjust amount of lemon juice, if necessary.

Serve over lots of ice.

Garnish with lemon slices or mint leaves.

Or a Strawberry Mint Julep.

Keep cool!
